The Grand Ole Opry honored our service men and women with a special Tuesday Night Opry Salute The Troops performance.
The red carpet was led by a drumline and special guests including Richard Casper, a United States Marine Veteran, Purple Heart recipient, artist and CreatiVets co-Founder/Executive Director, as well as retired Army General Keith Huber, who served 38 years as an Infantryman and Green Beret with tours in Panama, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Haiti, Honduras, Kosovo and Afghanistan. Huber is a senior advisor for the veterans and leadership initiatives at MTSU and was a guest announcer representing The Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center at MTSU.
Performers for the special evening included Opry members John Conlee, The Oak Ridge Boys and Rhonda Vincent as well as Craig Campbell, Jason Crabb, Locash and The War And Treaty—the husband-and-wife duo of U.S. Army veteran Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter.
The Opry and sponsor Humana partnered with CreatiVets to invite men and women of the U.S. military and CreatiVets members, as well as spouses, children and parents of service members to walk the red carpet into the Opry House for the evening’s show.
Highlights of this year’s Opry Salute the Troops will air as a special Opry Live on Memorial Day weekend (Saturday, May 27) on the Opry’s TV broadcast home, Circle Network, Circle All Access Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
